SCS.comA COMPELLING SEASON COMES TO A CLOSE
November 30, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Well this is my final normal article of the season, as the last truncated regular season week is upon us. Looking back on the regular season of 2006, there were a lot of things to like, such as the crazy upsets and debate over BCS possibilities, but there were a lot of things to dislike, such as bad new clock rules, bad replays, a brawl in Miami, and no real Heisman race. Despite all these downers, I still think 2006 was a good....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #14: CONFERENCE TITLES ON THE LINE
November 29, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
The USC Trojans made a huge statement on Saturday as they hammered Notre Dame 44-24 and set themselves up for the position opposite Ohio State in the national title game. USC still must take care of one more piece of business this weekend in arch-rival and cross town-foe UCLA to cement their position. Also of note from this past weekend, Boise State secured themselves a position in the school's first ever BCS game....[MORE]

SCS.comFINAL BOWL PROJECTIONS; UNEXPECTED GOTW
November 28, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
The two best stories in college football this year come from two teams that faced off last weekend. The Rice Owls (7-5) started the season by losing their first four games. Dale Lloyd, a former defensive back for Rice, died the Monday after their fourth loss. The Owls tore up the rest of their schedule, winning 7 out of 8 games to finish the year. The seventh win locked up their first bowl bid since 1961, as they beat Southern....[MORE]

SCS.comACC-BIG TEN MEET HIGHLIGHTS HOOPS SLATE
November 27, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
With Thanksgiving behind us, the college hoops non-conference slate really begins to hit stride this week, led by the annual ACC-Big Ten challenge. This year, that event bring us a number of huge pre-Christmas showdowns, like the matchups between Indiana and Duke in Durham and Ohio State and North Carolina in Chapel Hill. There are also a number of other interesting out-of-conference meetings dotting this week's....[MORE]

SCS.comHOLIDAY WEEKEND ANSWERS SOME QUESTIONS
November 26, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
Another great week in college football has come and gone, and with it, the BCS hopes of the West Virginia Mountaineers and Texas Longhorns have passed away as well. With the Texas loss to Texas A&M, Oklahoma has back-doored its way into the Big XII championship game and possibly into a BCS bowl, if the Sooners manage to knock off Nebraska in the conference title game. West Virginia lost convincingly to an....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #13: IRISH, TROJANS SET TO DO BATTLE
November 21, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
One piece of the national title puzzle was wrapped up on Saturday afternoon as Ohio State outlasted Michigan 42-39 in a surprisingly high-scoring offensive showcase. The spot opposite the Buckeyes still remains wide open as the one-loss candidates are all lining up to make their case. As we head into the final week of action in November, the list of unbeatens has been shaved down to two in OSU and Boise State....[MORE]

SCS.comGALLERY: BCS CLEARS UP AFTER 'THE GAME'
November 20, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
On a cold November night in Columbus, Ohio, the national title and Heisman Trophy were both wrapped up. Ohio State and Michigan played one for the ages in their 103rd meeting, and perhaps they also locked up a 104th meeting in January at Glendale. The 42-39 score was not typical of these defensive powerhouses, but if there is one truism in college football, it is “expect the unexpected.” As one of the lucky 105,708....[MORE]

SCS.comHOLIDAY WEEK OFFERS BIGGEST MATCHUP YET
November 20, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
After the Coaches vs Cancer Classic came to a close last Friday following two great evenings of action in New York City, a number of other preseason events will resume and then conclude their activity this holiday week, including the CBE Classic in Kansas City and the Preseason NIT in NYC. Also getting underway this week are the Maui Invitational, the Old Spice Classic, and others. Finally, the upcoming seven days also....[MORE]

SCS.comGAME WAS GREAT, BUT NO REMATCH PLEASE
November 19, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler were shaking their heads up above as the Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines combined to score 81 points. Goodbye three yards and a cloud of dust, hello 900 yards of total offense. Ohio State ripped through Michigan's number one run defense, and OSU running backs Chris Wells and Antonio Pittman both managed touchdown runs from 52 and 55 yards. Michigan's highly-touted....[MORE]

SCS.comRECAPPING THE WEEKEND ON THE GRIDIRON
November 19, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
If Rutgers ever had a chance to make it to the national championship game, they took it and threw it down the toilet on Saturday, losing a contest that most analysts considered a trap game in the first place, with Cincinnati being an underrated team with a stingy defense and a backup quarterback who threw for 277 yards and a touchdown. RB Raymell Rice was held to only 54 yards on 18 carries...[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: THE PRESEASON BRACKET
November 17, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
The 2006-2007 SCS.com Hoops Preview series concludes today, and what good would a college basketball preview be without a preseason look at the NCAA Tournament's field of sixty-five? None at all, we feel. So with that very thought in mind, here is a glance at what we expect the bracket to look like when it's revealed about four months from now. While both selecting and seeding the entire field, we also look at those teams....[MORE]

SCS.comW2W4: THE BIGGEST GAME IN RECENT HISTORY
November 17, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
So you're wondering what to watch this weekend, right? That, after all, is the general purpose of this weekly piece, a way of separating the important from the meaningless. But in this week's case, there's little I can say that hasn't already been said. Michigan-Ohio State is as big as it gets. Period. Sure, there are other games to keep an eye on, like those that will help decide the ACC race, those that involve teams scrambling....[MORE]

SCS.comGO BLUE! GO BUCKS! 'THE GAME' ARRIVES
November 16, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
The national championship game has arrived, albeit a month or two early. When #2 Michigan takes the field against #1 Ohio State, the national champion will be on the field this Saturday. How would you describe this game in one or two words? Championships, border war, Heisman, greatest rivalry, explosive offenses, strangling defenses, coaching masters, amazing, passionate... All are possibilities. After attending this....[MORE]

By Ethan, SCS.com Staff Writer
Oh boy! It doesn’t get any bigger than this! Do I have to even mention the event I’m speaking of? Seriously? Until I meet than special lady and have my first little Ethan enter in to this world, this is the most exciting time of my life, and nothing else even comes close. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks this college football season, there’s a little showdown in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday that is going....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: THE ALL-AMERICANS
November 15, 2006
By SouthernCollegeSports.com Staff
The SCS.com Hoops Preview series is heading down the home stretch, but it wouldn't be fully complete unless we took a minute to recognize some of the top college basketball stars in the country. The staff has come together in recent weeks and selected just fifteen players from fifteen different teams that highlight our First-, Second-, and Third-Team Preseason All-America squads. North Carolina's Tyler Hansbrough....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #12: BIG TEN HEAVYWEIGHTS COLLIDE
November 14, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
Heading down the season’s stretch run, the BCS became even more interesting this week as only four unbeaten teams now remain in Ohio State, Michigan, Rutgers, and Boise State. Falling by the wayside were the Cardinals of Louisville who had their BCS dreams smashed by a tremendous Rutgers comeback. Shaping up to be a great battle is the positioning of the plethora of one-loss teams still pushing and....[MORE]

SCS.comONE-LOSS TEAMS FAILING TO STAY FOCUSED
November 14, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
When Rutgers fans started rushing the field and celebrating their team's win over Louisville, BCS contenders celebrated with them. Many teams began to make their cases for the national championship game in Glendale, Arizona, but those teams forgot one thing. They had to win the rest of their games. Cal lost to unranked Arizona on the road, the Wildcats sealing the win after tipping a Nate Longshore pass at the line....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS ACTION HEATS UP IN SECOND WEEK
November 13, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Though football - namely Ohio State vs Michigan - is still king, the first full week of college hoops action is also on our plate in the days ahead, and this one seems to provide a much more well-balanced slate of games. A number of the "in-season" tournaments like the CBE Classic, NIT Tipoff, 2K Sports Classic, and Paradise Jam will provide some of the week's top matchups, though there are also a number of impressive....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: THE ACC AND SEC
November 13, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
SCS.com wraps up the conference preview portion of our preseason look ahead to the college hoops season with a glance inside both the ACC and SEC, perhaps the best two conferences in America this year. Annual favorites North Carolina and Duke are again expected to be at the top of the ACC standings this year, while defending national champion Florida looks to be the early favorite in the SEC. Other teams to keep....[MORE]

SCS.comTITLE CHASERS ELIMINATED FROM THE HUNT
November 12, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
This week the national title race cleared up a little with the elimination of one undefeated team, as Louisville lost to Rutgers, and three other one-loss teams (Cal, Auburn, and Texas). With the losses at the top, the game next weekend featuring #1 Ohio State vs. #2 Michigan will have large implications on the national title hopes of USC, Rutgers, Arkansas, and Notre Dame. The Big XII South suffered tremendously as all....[MORE]

November 10, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
Week two of the SCS.com Hoops Preview series concludes with a look at two of the country's major conferences. This year, expect to see a few new faces near the top of the Big Ten standings once conference play rolls around, as Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Michigan should all be contenders. In the Big East, Pittsburgh and Georgetown look to have what it takes to finish near the top, as do Syracuse, Connecticut, and Marquette....[MORE]

SCS.comW2W4: LOCKING 'EM UP - TITLES AND BOWLS
November 10, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
Well, we can't move forward without mentioning last night's huge game, won on a last-minute field goal by Rutgers. But looking ahead to the weekend, it's all about locking it up on Saturday; that is the theme heading into the weekend. If you're a team like Nebraska, Texas, Central Michigan, Ohio, or Houston, you're trying to lock up a division title. If you're a team like Indiana, Oklahoma State, East Carolina, SMU, New Mexico....[MORE]

SCS.comBIG EAST: HERE WE GO AGAIN
November 9, 2006
By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Remember back just two months ago when the best sportswriters asked if a national title could be won on Thursdays? Of course we were referring to West Virginia, but the focus was not too far off. After Louisville rid WVU of its national title contention, the Thursday question is still legitimate, as the Big East appears destined to try to send the conference champion (who plays a lot on Thursdays) to Glendale. For the Big East....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: PAC-10 & BIG XII
November 8, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
The SCS.com College Hoops Preview series rolls along with our first individual looks at the nation's top conferences, beginning with the PAC-10 and Big XII. UCLA, last year's national title runner-up, is again a favorite in their league race out west, though Arizona and Washington should also be top contenders. All three of those teams are ranked in our Preseason Fab 15. In the Big XII, meanwhile, it appears that Kansas....[MORE]

SCS.comHOOPS PREVIEW: MUST-SEE NON-CONFERENCE
November 8, 2006
By Jeff, SCS.com Staff Writer
This season is full of great non-conference games. Many would be surprised to see so many contests between the top 10 to 15 teams in the country. However, there is not a fan out there that would complain about the amount of high-quality games on this season's slate. Moreover, there are also dozens of games between potential NCAA Tournament teams and quality mid-major squads. Nearly every night you can sit down....[MORE]

SCS.comWEEK #11: BIG EAST SETS THE STAGE AGAIN
November 7, 2006
By Gregg, SCS.com Staff Writer
In last week’s action, yet another unbeaten was knocked from the ranks as West Virginia suffered their first defeat on the season as the Mountaineers were unable to slow down the high flying Louisville attack. The Cardinals now add their name right into the middle of the national title picture as only 5 teams remain unblemished after the first week of action in November. Also of note this week is that numerous teams in the top ten....[MORE]

SCS.comSURVIVING NOVEMBER IS NO EASY TASK
November 7, 2006
By Matt, SCS.com Staff Writer
The pressure heats up with the realization that the college football season is coming to a close, and the dreams of many teams are within their reach. Ohio State and Michigan were caught looking ahead, as they both struggled to beat lesser opponents. OSU was up 17-0 at the end of the 1st half against Illinois, and head coach Jim Tressel admittedly shut down the offense as Tory Smith's Heisman aspirations took a small hit....[MORE]

SCS.comA PREVIEW OF COLLEGE HOOPS' OPENING WEEK
November 6, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
It's the first full week of November, and you know exactly what that means, right? Less than two weeks until Ohio State-Michigan. No, not that! College hoops is what I had in mind, and yes, the regular season finally begins this week. While it's not a great schedule of opening-week action, there are a number of key battles to keep an eye on, not to mention the early rounds of this year's 2K Sports Classic. So don't take your....[MORE]

November 5, 2006
By Reed, SCS.com Staff Writer
In a week of near-upsets and status-confirming victories, the college football world was one of huge emotion, both highs and lows. From the status-assuring victory of Texas to the near-upset of #1 Ohio State by Illinois, this weekend reminded us all why we love this game. With their victory last Thursday, Louisville solidified its hold on the Big East. Texas, meanwhile, staked its claim on the Big XII South with a victory....[MORE]

The Florida Gators will begin this season exactly where the left off at the end of last season, ranked number one in the country. Billy Donovan's squad has edged out second-ranked North Carolina for the top spot in our Preseason Fab 15 as the SCS.com Hoops Preview series rolls along. Kansas is number three, while a pair of Final Four teams from a year ago, UCLA and LSU, round out the the top five....[MORE]

November 3, 2006
By Jonathan, SCS.com Editor
While this piece generally advises you on what to keep an eye on throughout the weekend ahead, we would be remiss not to mention last night's huge showdown between West Virginia and Louisville, undoubtedly this weekend's game of the week. At the same time though, there's still plenty of important action on the slate for Saturday, including a pair of huge, division-deciding contests in both the SEC and ACC....[MORE]

By David, SCS.com Staff Writer
Pardon me if I happened to sleep through the last two weeks of October. When the seven undefeated teams left have a stretch of two weeks where the hardest games were against the likes of Indiana, Syracuse, Oregon State, Iowa, and Pittsburgh.... Let’s just say the plethora of one-loss teams was much more entertaining, especially considering each one either lost or had scares over the past two weeks. Now the calendars turn....[MORE]

The 2006-2007 SCS.com Hoops Preview rolls along in week number one as we take a step upward and glance towards this season's crop of mid-majors. While the mid-majors enjoyed a banner year last season, sending George Mason to the Final Four, there could be even more Sweet Sixteen threats this season as a number of these schools look to have teams worthy of top 25 rankings and high seeds come NCAA....[MORE]
